  1. Killer job on that set, buddy. Looking forward to skating your wing when I get back to Toronto!
  2. Curious to see if the new eyelet orientation adds a bit of unintentional volume.
  3. If you just got it the other day, then send it in for warranty.
  4. Once you feel the nut's seated, give it another quarter turn. Always found Tuuk holders pretty easy to overtighten.
  5. Wouldn't be surprised if your steel was overtightened or put under any undue stress, especially if it broke in the same spot on both runners. I've been on Step for almost three years and haven't had a single problem.
  6. The "in Europe" part made me laugh.
  7. All right, so upon further review of using Sk8-Fuel, the product has been making a difference and the on-ice performance is noticeable. I've skated with it, skated without it, then skated with it again, and was able to tell the difference. While not really noticeable on straight, end-to-end skating, I found myself in and out of turns and pivots faster than without an application. However, I wouldn't bank on the claim that the paste's film is 'permanent,' even without sharpening. After 1 hour of ice time I've been getting snow and slush buildup on the side of my blades... To be fair, I've been wiping off my blades liberally after every session, so that might have something to do with it, but I can't bring myself to store my skates in my bag without drying them off.
  8. Chalk it up to bad luck, then. Happens to the best of us!
  9. Hope you've still got your receipt.

  11. Upon further review... Took a decent shinny skate tonight without SK8 Fuel. Not sure if it was the late ice time, or that my legs were just tired (hadn't really done anything out of the ordinary), or that I had a fresh 90/75 sharpening, but I felt slightly stickier on the ice. I've been using SF the past three or four sessions because we have a tester available in the shop, but didn't notice a change then. I'm going to give SF another try tomorrow... let you know if I feel a difference this time around.
  12. Lol... I never said anything about charging for a treatment. The kit itself is what's expensive. I was talking about something for sharpeners to do to a blade post-honing. For that, probably wouldn't charge more than an extra buck or two.
  13. I've given it a good test run and haven't found any noticeable on-ice improvements. One of the claims of SK-8 Fuel was less buildup of snow, but I was still pulling slush between shifts and after skates. On the other hand, it didn't hinder any part of my game, either. After proper application, it makes the blade feel smooth to the touch, if not a little greasy. It's a nice little addition for shop guys to add at the end of honing, but probably isn't worth the MSRP.
